Corum Bubble 47 Flying Tourbillon: Eerie originality
September 18, 2017

Steve Aoki’s a fan

Dark and unforgettable elegance. Unnerving power of time. Eerie originality. Any brand that touts these as the key brand USP’s needs to be considered. Very. Seriously.


Consider the wondrous Corum Bubble 47 Flying Tourbillon. The hollowed eyes of the skull hints at dark, mysterious happenings beneath the signature dome of glare-proof sapphire. Encircled by gleaming rose gold case, even as you take in the staring eyes of the skull, the flying tourbillon is visible within the wide-open jaw. The exposed micro-rotor tourbillon is set against a charcoal backdrop, a dramatic effect which is enhanced by a strap made of black alligator.

Somber, yet truly dark and unforgettable. As many timepieces strive to be, not too successfully.

The Corum Bubble 47 Flying Tourbillon watch is priced at US $100,500.
